The Sweetest of Dreams

The baby boom continues…it seems like every other week I discover someone in my expanded sphere is prego, or I’m packaging up a baby gift, or I’m playing guessing games as to who will announce they’ve got a baby on board next. With that said, I’ve been on the hunt for creative yet practical baby gifts that will truly win over the mom-to-be’s heart and mind. The good news is, I think I’ve landed on the perfect gift – particularly if you’re shopping for someone extra close to you, like your own child, sibling or best friend.

Edele Scènes enfants-2
Atelier ëdele is the brainchild of Hélène and Joëlle, two lovely ladies who – and they will tell you this – quite honestly have no background in textiles. However, they had a simple dream: to create beautiful and functional bedding for children that reflected their creative minds but would also have an extended place in their lives.

Atelier Edele Bedding The ladies have instead relied on the expertise of local artisans – who design the whimsical prints on their children’s bedding – and manufacturers in Ontario and Quebec to produce eco-friendly organic cotton sheets, right here in Canada. Not only can you feel good about supporting local artists and this locally based-brand, you’ll also be giving mom a helping hand; the baby comforters are both reversible and larger than standard-sized baby sheets, so they can transition alongside your friend’s toddler as he or she grows up. Each Baby Sheet Set ($200) comes with a comforter that is paired with a complementary flat sheet, fitted sheet, and petite pillow, making it the easiest way possible to outfit your loved one’s little one’s crib.

sac-de-nuit-rosesIf you’re looking for a pretty yet cost-effective gift from Atelier ëdele, I recommend their sleep sacks ($70). Made from the same plush cotton, these cozy sleep sacks are reversible; with an illustration matching their baby sleep sets on one side, and a simple pattern (stripes or dots) on the other.

Atelier Edele Kid Sheet Sets

The newest offering from Atelier ëdele is a brand new (as in, you can only pre-order them as of the date of this post) line of duvet covers for children. Compared to the baby line, the children’s collections have a range of other, slightly more ‘grown-up’ prints with cute themes like outer space, nautical or flowers. With the kid sets, you can buy them piecemeal, allowing you to mix-and-match with pieces your friend or family member might already have for their children. Prices start at $20 for a pillow and go up to $90 for a single bed duvet cover and $110 for a double bed duvet cover.

Irene roses baby kit

At the moment, your best source for Atelier ëdele products is online – although they are present at a few select boutiques in Canada, as well as select trade shows, like the incredible One of a Kind Show in Toronto. Again, I think this makes a wonderful baby shower present for a close friend or family member (or go in with a couple of gal pals to make it more affordable). Not only is it something ultra stylish, it’s something every parent needs and will truly treasure.

Finally, I am beyond excited to announce that Atelier ëdele has been kind enough to donate one baby kit to one lucky winner! Whether you’re expecting, planning to have a family, or have someone special in your life that’s boarding the baby train, this is an incredible prize, valued at $200 and including a comforter, flat sheet, fitted sheet and pillow.
